New Orleans Saints quarterback Jameis Winston has been lost for the rest of the 2021 NFL season. He was injured against his former team.

He went down awkwardly on a tackle by Buccaneers linebacker Devin White. He suffered a torn ACL and MCL damage, according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.

Saints head coach Sean Payton called the injury “significant” after the game. Winston — who signed a one-year deal with the team in the offseason — will have to surgery in the near future once swollen goes down.

He will then have to rehab the injury. Despite the injury, Winston celebrated with his teammates on crutches following the win.

This injury could potentially impact his chances to secure a long-term deal in the offseason. He may have to accept another one-year, prove-it deal.

Winston went 6 of 10 for 56 yards before the second-quarter injury. He also has one touchdown pass against the Buccaneers.

He was replaced in the game by Trevor Siemian, who completed the game. Siemian — who was previously a starter for the Denver Broncos — may be the team’s starter moving forward.

He has started 25 NFL games. Siemian made 24 starts for the Broncos. In 2019, he also made one start for the New York Jets.
